Cruelty Free Pet Food

It's quite possible that you've never considered whether the food you buy your pets is cruelty free. Many companies carry out invasive testing on pets like yours in laboratories, and not as straight forward taste tests as many brands would have you believe.

Here is a list of some of the pet friendly brands (for more information, visit the PETA website)

Choccalishous: New Ezydog Dog Harnesses and Leads

We're in the process of adding the full product range from Ezydog to
We absolutely love their bungy leads - if you're tired of your dog pulling your arm out of its socket, these leads are heaven sent. Complete with a gripped handle to even pressure, the bungy action of the lead reduces pull on your arm, and creates less stress on the dogs neck.

The Cujo lead, teamed with an Ezydog Dog Harness will make walks much more pleasurable for both of you. The leads have an extra safety feature of a reflective thread (as do the neo collars.)

Have a look at the complete Ezydog range (we're loving the chocolate harness, matched with the 40" Cujo lead for Jack - he looks the business!)

More new stock! "Evil" T-shirts from Puchi as seen on The Paul O'Grady Show ITV1

We purposely don't stock many dog clothes, but every now and then an item comes up which we fall in love with (such as the puchi pac a macs) and we know JackPaws customers will love them too.
These red dog t-shirts from Puchi, feature a silver "Evil" printed on the back. We all know no matter how much we love our dogs and they love us back, they've all got a little evil streak in them!
This t-shirts will be available this week on

Jacks Product of the Week: Enamel Dog Tags for Dogs

We saw these fantastic dog tags at crufts 2008, and just knew we had to stock them.

They really are some of the best quality, funkiest tags we've seen, and they're pretty good value too (certainly compared to the rather cheap looking tags we've seen in the larger retail park pet stores.)

Two of the biggest complaints we hear from Pet owners is that the engraving wears off the tags, or the ring attachment is so flimsy, the pet loses them.

These pet ID's from Red Dingo are made from high quality stainless steel, and the colour is enamelled (not painted) so it lasts. The disc's themselves are about 3 mm thick with rounded edges. Jack Paws currently offer 8 designs, 9 colour options and 3 sizes (we're looking to expand the range to offer cat tags too).

Engraving is free - as the tags are delivered straight from the manufacturer, they can take 7-10 days (but we've found it's generally quicker.)

Go on, jazz up your dogs collar with a funkier and better quality dog ID tag! See the range available at
